Looks like Boonen went of course towards end?

When the Euskatel rider misses that right hand turn at the end of the stage, looks like Boonen went of course.

Hope Boonen feels better soon. Don't think he can really beat Cav one on one but he might be closer than any of the other sprinters.

Yes, apparently Fernandez hit the wheel of the rider in front of him and Fernandez went down; that prevented Boonen from making the right hand turn. The crash also took out Bennati and Napolitano and some other sprinters. I hope tomorrow's stage is better. Quickstep also lost Van de Walle who crashed 35 km into the race (punctured lung and broken collarbone)... hope he recovers soon.

Does this really need to be the subject of an entire thread? It could be posted on the thread for Stage 2 thereby saving other more deserving threads from the page 2 or 3 wasteland that is any forums second or third page.

Please people, brevity and consolidation of similar topics into more general thread topics is the idea. See, just because you have a thought or question, doesn't mean we want to see a whole thread on it. There really is a forum etiquette, and maybe we need a sticky thread with that as a topic?
